Voyeuristic Oil Paintings Look Like Multiple Exposure Photographs

Korean artist Horyon Lee utilizes the photography technique of multiple exposures to produce a sensual style of movement in his slightly scandalous oil paintings. The overlapping images created by layers of opaque paint show several moments at once.

Focusing solely on the fragmented female form, Lee's work has a strong sense of voyuerism. While some of the subjects seem to be aware of and perhaps even acting for an audience, others are depicted lost in their own world, completely unaware that they are the focus of attention.

There is an undeniable eroticism in the captured frames of movement. They tease the line between obscuring and revealing. It is that suggestive and flirtatious nature of Lee's realistic, blurred motion paintings that makes them so visually entrancing.
